10:01pm
this book is about liberals, not democrats. the sometimes not that different but that the peculiar branch of american who sell but the device in this life as a liberal whishing more of us were liberal. think michael moore, and the pelosi, your local college professor. cryer drove the trees descartes bush is hitler bumper sticker. [laughter] the checkout help with the master's degree of gender studies at the local whole food store. the dominate professions that we've been imprint like journalism, academia, a music industry and the fastest growing band of
10:02pm
entertainers cirque du soleil. how did these such a big impact? i am in excellent position where watching liberals closely over 30 years like jane goodall steadies her champs. [laughter] in the national habitat without judgment. and in silence because we barely speak the same language. i have broke bread comedies, imitated, prodded them and even love to some of them. some are members of my own family. some even question my a lope -- mental-health. i saw the vagina monologues.
10:03pm
i listen to npr whenever i got the chance. eight even learned about the tse tse fly by two new into all things considered. [laughter] and i can even watch my car been footprint. [applause] what did i learn? liberals not love many things they endlessly try to correct, affix and mend every aspect of the day the life. they think about america's faults, its bills and how to cure them. they love to hate to what most americans love and endlessly tried to take those away from us. because they love us. thus was born the book "50 things liberals love to hate." i hope you will enjoy it. mcdonald's.
10:04pm
who stole my happy meal? if you could build a time machine maybe 50 years and said in the future man would walk on the moon, i carry videophones and poor americans would be fact. they would say really? pour people are supposed to be skinny. rich people look like old photographs during the depression. the poor people look like the barons of the 1890's cartoon sketches. [laughter] they think lay off the bread.
10:05pm
wouldn't kill you to have the sow led? take the stairs. liberals say we should pass laws forbidding obesity and start federal guidelines and federally subsidized wheat lost programs. they blame mcdonald's because they sell delicious and fattening friday's and salads and even the beloved happy meal is under assault by politicians for quote some even call themselves scientists. science for the public interest threatened to sue mcdonald's of they did not stop selling happy meals. with the nanny state hyperbole they equated child abuse and child molestation. in handy how-to children
10:06pm
they said in a prepared statement it is a predatory practice that warrants an injunction. the statement sounded creepy. the barrels a mcdonald's and its competitors because it symbolizes everything they love it -- low. to deliver high quality and convenience and speed to be franchised across the globe to provide millions of jobs. they hate that last part. it is not something that is useful but the fact of 25% of all working americans have worked at a mcdonald's or the competitors alarms liberals. that is a terrific way to learn tye management, customer-service
10:07pm
but for liberals is a big red flag. in the documentary "super size me" more ginsberg lock 83 donald's so much he decided to eat only mcdonald's food three times a day for 30 days. what happened? he gained 24 pounds. surprise. that would of happened 58 at ihop three times per day. he only wanted to vilify mcdonald's. why didn't he choose to eat ice cream sundaes, or cheese, canned ham? that would not have made him with a mess or make him the michael moore of his generation. he should have followed michael moore around all
10:08pm
day. [laughter] of that would have been fun to watch. the truth is super size me was a stunt and super sized his bank account. i am for that. many as other potential targets are scared. starbucks that sell sugar and high calorie coffee drinks are exempt from the fast-food hatred from liberals. you can get that on a double quarter pounder with cheese they want to pass laws. if it is on a lot say with a caramel shot their delighted to look the of their way. it shows on to progress.
10:09pm
howard schultz the founder of starbucks took something what americans love and could serve it faster and better. job skills training? liberals hate that. food that is delicious and have fattening showing personal responsibility liberals eight negative all of that hate wrapped up in a cardboard box with the sesame seed bun common melted cheese, special sauce, pickle, and incoming catch-up and fries on the side. the revealing hungry right now. you might be a conservative. [laughter] [applause] flag pins. let me make a confession.
10:10pm
in a liberal part of town yoga studios, electric cars cars, i always make sure i wear my american flag lapel pin. a silly game a play with myself. i am basing them but i cannot help myself. liberals eight these american flag lapel pins. i don't know why. more than the american flag. in the same neighborhoods use the it the flag flying high bb the pin is in-your-face, personal, and in a place not usually found. i will be at the counter and i will see their eyes flicker to the lapel and i will see the look. what is that? followed by alarm.
10:11pm
what is wrong with him? he is an american free. ideas are right wing in net like a had a swastika. that is not why they hate it. when i wear my american flag lapel pin i am not talking about the next election, although you know, who i prefer. [laughter] it just means that i am grateful to live in a country that honors and protects freedom offering boundless opportunities than does its best to nurture the spirits. i love my country. maybe that is why liberals hated so much. it sounds like patriotic feeling. i love america.
10:12pm
five of the idea. then the warbles follow all the injustices to plymouth quote rocket to the election of george w. bush. [laughter] do they do this with their wives? i love you but those extra of the few pounds were not there when we first met to. liberals have reservations about everything. with the american flag there is an automatic times. yes, but. we drive to much. we eat too much. we're to american. yes we are a beacon of liberty but we do not
10:13pm
recycle enough and rear to religious to be sophisticated. during his run up to the election senator barack obama had this scene were all democrat candidates standing on the stage listening to the national anthem while facing the american flag, all but one had a hand over the heart. who? his initials of b.h.o.. and then saying i was concerned about what design york lapel been in your heart. tried that with your wife. i love you but i will not buy you the diamond earrings
10:14pm
i am less concerned than what is in your heart. he was asked again about the lapel pin in cedar rapids iowa. "right after 9/11 i haven't been particularly because talking about the iraq war was a substitute for true patriotism speaking out to national security. ". it kept getting worse. the pin he used to like and don't everybody started to like it then he did not like it. he referred to the american replied lapel pin s "that been" listed alto the people what will make the country great and that is a testimony to my patriotism.
10:15pm
you heard it right. he called it "that pin" lipo clinton referred to that woman. [laughter] not to fear preparatory. obamacare year-round. he is now wearing it near his heart today every day. the cheesy thing you have to do as president. when he returns to civilian life, hopefully sooner than later. [applause] i suspect he will like to ditch that annoying little 10. he could replace it with united nations flag pins. no bigger than a nickel drives liberals bonkers.
10:16pm
here is a guy like me that seems nice i am not foaming at the mouth just my new mail business that i am grateful to live in the united states of america. gratitude of the sacrifices. gratitude to the opportunities it affords. gratitude where the military. gratitude to be a part of this experiment of representative democracy. liberals hate that. today is -- america is just okay. not okay as france. almost as we did. [laughter] i have to ignite charcoal i can hear them behind me trying to figure out.
10:17pm
conservative women. mouth the ladies and if i ruling was the olympic sport they beget the gold medal every time. to see it allowed brett drop the following words i was thinking about something sarah palin said the ad bereday. [laughter] stand back. what the half of puff begin. it doesn't matter how you finish the sentence. sarah palin like stock ice-cream or she thinks panda bears are cuddle the. it is a deranged automatic rejection everything she says or thinks. says try it with an coulter. you have the same reaction. any well-known female nine
10:18pm
apologetically female. you get the olympic global i ruling. liberals hate mouth the conservative women. the new generation of women that rejects the 1970's era feminist dogma. would is insulting some just refuse to show gratitude. liberals have tried to break down barriers of sexism. when sarah palin and kaman to the scene -- on the scene they had notorious to attacker for outfits, accent, education, children, and make up, for a group of folks who tried not -- to eliminate sexism they know how to use it. just like an colder.
10:19pm
notice the improvement over the years look at the betty one reversed them is to emerge in the '60s. [laughter] fast forward consider conservative writer s.e. cupp. then the enormously a popular sitting governor the us and jenna barack obama from obscurity bothered nobody in the mainstream media per resume so thin even double spaced with extra-large fought barely takes up one whole page. [laughter] [applause] and a crackerjack research team hands-on the document
10:20pm

10:22pm
katie couric tried her best tried to catch her in a club. she asked her what papers she read. she did not name any. few public people admit to what papers they read but it was sarah palin. katie couric through her under the bus. can you imagine if she had that same zeal with the president and asked him a few tough questions how many soldiers are in a battalion. [laughter] after steering she could have followed up your asking to make the commander-in-chief you have known many days no idea how many aranesp italian? i am sure john mccain knows that but sarah palin
10:23pm
would the tissue and the national guard. you'd thought diane sawyer, barbara walters, and the shrews on video. [laughter] elizabeth hasselbeck does not count. but that approach drilling, bejeezus, a pro-military sarah palin was everywoman's nine ase -- worst nightmare. monica crowley and all the rest because they do not comport to womanhood. of only they would go away. luckily for us they are not going anywhere to five the
10:24pm
south racist rebels and rednecks. jeremiah dixon charles phase-in divided the colony's into northern and southern region. the mason-dixon line marks where the north and south begin and end. dry yeast then goes out. at some point* they will call usurp or ma'am. they have a million ways to save think you. one is appreciate you. actually he said appreciate you, sir. their plight, but tradition tradition, liberals despise them. liberals hate the south of seven accent is look at me.
10:25pm
i am racist. when they hear the southern dialect they here i am about to talk about jesus. [laughter] monday encounter yes, sir, or no ma'am the brain hears i am a slow footed hillbilly without a thought in my head. and no teeth. thing mississippi burning meets sling blade meets he ha. the mayor can sell is backwoods in breads come of that sheriffs, a transport -- trailer parks those shows up in make the thinly veiled air against liberals cannot imagine the south is anything that you'd best avoid. if the car breaks down or on
10:26pm
a rafting trip with friends. [laughter] nothing good can happen in the south. ones that creepy kid with the banjo starts playing, it is over. it is easy to characterize the south because so few go with their less to take a stop at hilton head. if they did drive to the real south they would get to the very different and disturbing picture. that is what liberals need to do to understand the country they hate so much. for them to see is excellent restaurants, international banks research centers and top universities the even have a dentist down there and cable-tv.
10:27pm
[laughter] if we could march this month liberal to mississippi rica stop for lunch at one of the many delicious places show them something never expected to see. black and white people eating together. he then at the same table that happens a lot u.s. year racially integrated crowd diverse to use the word that liberals love but in another part? it would disturb them to realize the south is more integrated than the coast cities. not meant this or mobile but los angeles, new york. and possible they will cry. for the past decade african americans have been moving south a reverse of the great migration when large parts
10:28pm
of the population moves north but now blacks are coming back. impossible. don't they know it is full of red necks in reese's? the more important to the better place to raise kids. kids don't learn to say yes. . . -- yes ma'am or no sir. for this mason-dixon line still shows up on maps but it is better to be on the south side. it is the fastest growing region up 14%. people moving to texas 1,000 per day. b&w opens facilities in south carolina and atlantic and churches is the hub of international media and
10:29pm
commerce. in his blighted neighborhood he hates the south like east berlin hated west berlin. they haven of entrepreneurialism have always outperformed the statist neighbors south korea over north korea. hong kong and taiwan. this is a universal truth the south of fills the same role today with the prosperity exposed the impoverished lies and deceit. that is why liberals hate the south. [applause] because they believe the environment of hillbillies have defeated them. they can barely stand it. and it lies with though 17
10:30pm
virtue in the end even the liberal haccp have the place to live or work driving and nail in the dream because as he picked -- packs of this stuff soon you'll hear the words that will drive a dagger into his hopes. how the neighbor. [laughter] , everybody gets the trophy. [laughter] . .
10:31pm
about high school graduations and the issue of valedictorians. the -- the torian initio? did they go on a crime sprain alcohol binge? and it turns out i used bunch of schools in america think that by having just one of the the the torian is mean spirited and not very inclusive so they are now instead having multiple valedictorians. now before i proceed with the story, i want to turn to the good folks at merriam-webster to get a definition of the term
10:32pm
valedictorian. this having the highest rank the graduating class to deliver the valedictorian address at the convention exercises. when i went to school there was one of the victorian and that person had the highest grade them there was the salutatory with the second highest grades they made speeches on graduation day, really bad speeches. laughter cut in the was me. it was a miracle i got any grades at all given any speeches. flash forward to 2010, jericho high school in long island new york in that "new york times" story turns out on public torian wasn't do with this particular school so they went for, wait for it, seven instead, seventh bullet trains. what was the explanation? pushed by the parents or students? no, turns out it was one guy, the principal at jericho he didn't like having just one of the victorian. he said when did we start saying we should live in the honors serving one person it's the glory he asked "the new york
10:33pm
times" reporter it got more interesting in terms of the public schools administrators were beginning to decide. here's how "the new york times" behind the trend principals say that recognizing multiple for the victorians reduces pressure among students is it equitable way to honor achievements particularly when number one and number five may be divided by the fraction of agreed from self more science. liberals do things like dispense with the leavitt traditions like the valedictorian and decide how to create ways to honor achievement. i wondered as i was reading that article why stop, what about the students that came really close? because a lot of emotional damage to come close and find out they didn't need the velo victorian cut and the kids that
10:34pm
got close how about the linus did they deserve to be from the victorians, too? it turns out the high school in colorado agrees with this garbage. brace yourself, the head ten velo victorians last year and sanity as well. they honored friday from the victorians. 6.5% of their entire class in 2010 bought gold on records, 30 valedictorians. i thought was a principal joke. it's not just the public schools now. it's spreading into the publicly traded companies, too. take general motors, please. americans did take gm committed in the? we bailed out the car company and we still own a huge chunk. take the big banks. we beyond keeping of little league games liberals hate
10:35pm
success and the first competition if they had their way we would all be playing a game of life, scandinavian style with the titles that assure little variation of income with little if any variation between success and failure. the second amendment, now, listen this is easy. liberals aren't crazy about what is in the constitution but it's safe to say what they hate the most is the second amendment so let's start with the very complicated find the text of the second amendment of the constitution. this could take a very long time. a well regulated militia necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. [applause] with a minute. that's it. 27 words, that is what they are
10:36pm
exercised about, it can't be all that hard to understand but they managed to confuse liberals. with those words liberals see all kinds of possibilities and interpretations increased to regulate the bad handguns and rifles to force the states to register gun owners to prohibit sales and transfer in other words that 27 were sentenced, the key words of which are security, free state and right of the people and shall not be infringed. liberals see ways to undermine security comer gunster in the state and infringe the rights of the people. it's impressive you have to hand it to the liberals they can invert just about anything. let's make our way through the big one. the militia of this is about the militia peoria recall that the national guard. the national guard is a great thing. some liberals are supportive of this and they disparage would when talking about bush's service and a branch of the guard during the vietnam era but with the founders were talking
10:37pm
about is the necessity of raising the militia when they distributed among the citizens for safer and more effective in the weapons captain the government control are very. they also like the idea of a bunch of states, liberals hate that, too that is another chapter of the book each with its own idiosyncratic touch is linked by the republican government. imagine the union of states for the citizens of individual states had a fair amount of say about what goes on inside their borders. it's possible it opens up the possibility of ever to defer certain states to vote to ban or regulate certain weapons as some have done that in general they seem to interest this kind of varied difference between the states. liberals hate that of course because it means that certain states like utah and texas might be conservative and have a right wing who always and it also means the crackpot lefty states like massachusetts and vermont to mandate for the eminem is for everyone if they want. but that's not enough for
10:38pm
liberals. the only freedom they like is the freedom to make you do with the tell you to do. the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed it says. you are crazy. well, yes. i'm sorry but shall not be entrenched. to go over one more time shall not be infringed. they argue it is completely off topic any way because nobody's talking not regulating. people don't have those. those are with the liberals wanted to take away and here is why they want to take them away to protect us. it's nice of them isn't it? sure you were thinking you could
10:39pm
protect yourself. according to the last count about 30,000 people died in newly in the accidents. remember that number, 30,000 annually in the incidents. about 45,000 died in car crashes about 37,000 died from poisoning to get about 20,000 a year died from unintentional false. the framers of the constitution didn't say they were not dangerous. they are especially to the invaders and jeeves, but they were necessary. it's necessary and reinforces the constitutional notion of the free and sovereign people citizens of the country that as the collection of republican states to put it much better it well regulated militia to be necessary for the security of a free state or the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. pretty much every single word in that sentence is what gives liberals the heebie-jeebies. on the either hand people dhaka
10:40pm
of unintentional false turiano maybe they should abandon the letters. the fact is freedom is dangerous. in the book more guns less crime author john what proved in places there were more guns in the hands of local citizens there's less crime. having a gun and brandishing it actually prevents all kind of crime in america the crime that didn't happen because of gun was displayed. anyone who knows anything knows that criminals are cowards. they don't like a fair fight because they have an advantage and then picking up on the night clerks that work alone with an equalizer. a single mom with a gun is scarier than an nfl linebacker without one. [laughter] now, that's not just a legal theory. take the make my day. hers was one that most in america truly loved except liberals of course. one might come in january 2010 a couple of punks decided to celebrate the beginning of the new year by breaking into the
10:41pm
trailer of a young single mother 18-year-old sarah mckinley. she recently lost her husband and was living alone in a trailer with her three month old son in blanchard oklahoma. that is exactly what the bad guys chose her because she was alone with her baby and vulnerable. it turns out she had company in the house the fugs didn't anticipate. their names were smith & wesson. [applause] she was packing she had a shotgun and pistol and wasn't afraid to use them to defend herself or her baby and she called 911. >> i have a handgun in my hand is it okay to shoot someone that comes through the door. >> to protect yourself i can't tell you to do that but you do what you have to do to protect your baby. >> you do what you have to do. >> she killed one of those men and a mother ran away frightened coward. [applause]
10:42pm
>> she lifted them from the conservative state like oklahoma. i'm not an anti-gun states like massachusetts. liberals don't care what the constitution says. they don't care about the facts and they certainly don't care about this era mckinley in the world a of the right to keep and bear arms and protect themselves pitted the rights of the criminal trying to rob her, well, that is another story. the suburbs and a little pink houses and little lives. ask a liberal why he is the suburb and he will spit out particular speed they've always hated the laws of course. j.c. penney, macy's. do people like to shop at those places but it is nothing compared to the content for strip malls. i know what you're thinking if you have a best buy in the periera bread, dead at beyond and target in one place, who needs anything else? [laughter] get all the necessities in one place and enjoy the fresh air as you walk from shop to shop.
10:43pm
some even have a buffalo wild wings so you can have a drink while your wife spends an hour picking out in a shower curtain. what is not to love? wal-mart and have them -- watch then have an aneurysm. and you should hear some of the things they say about the rest of the strip malls. they hate to the big stores because they are to let corporate and put the mom-and-pop stores out of business for decades before amazon could. the amazon is okay with them because it's on the internet and they were not thrilled with anything on the web. they hate the way suburbanite's shop, too. mindlessly slurping up whatever corporation puts in front of them like drooling dogs unless of course that company would be helpful in which case they absolutely have to have whatever gadget just cannot because it is to we going to change the world to read in the ask them to go out for dinner. after they've reluctantly said yes, tell them to meet you at
10:44pm
6:00 at the red lobster. they will turn green from nausea or worse. it's a scientific fact liberals obsess over their grub. the overlap between food network viewers and the obama voters is pretty much totaled. on the previous owners were more space in the 2008 election cycle. a true story to it i took a little friend of mine to dinner one night after he left his fabulous manhattan co-op to visit me in the suburbs of long island. i didn't want to freakin' out sallai took him to dinner at caruthers, the strip mall trader eight. he pored over the menu for a full 15 minutes analyzing every dish, every ingredient. when the waiter came over body was ready and starts growing hammes raised or fresh caught. the mashed potatoes come with what kind of cream used in the whipped potatoes cannot substitute for the penne this
10:45pm
was a kid from a local high school he might have been 19-years-old he field of the quiz and my buddy one up boarding a plane he barely touched and i am convinced the reason the liberals get wrapped up around the axle over food is that they have too much time on their hands. the reason they have to much time on their hands is the same reason they live in the city and on the suburbs like the rest of us. they don't have kids often times. the suburbs were created and a symbol organizing principle made easy to make life easy for families and driver de dressel burba some time and count the minivans. liberals hate those, too by the we. why do people drive those soul fucking monstrosities? it's easy to hold the kids to the mall and soccer practice and the precious cargo you are hauling around the suburbs are designed to be as ruthlessly functional as the minivan. at the same reason we have chain
10:46pm
restaurants because you can take three kids for dinner and not get ugly looks and number two, not go broke. why we have strip malls? we have a shot for provisions and extra flushing for the roof and a new backpack without losing an entire weekend we have a dance recital to get to but they have to mow the lawn there's laundry and church on sunday morning and if we work really hard as we are super efficient we might, just might get to watch out a football game later in the afternoon. that is what suburban life is. people move. we start working in the core. we start spending a night with friends and weekends exploring bistros and going to the wine tastings and choose to do something that is we believe much more important slightly less glamorous. the irony is we don't begrudge or liberal hipster friends and their lives.
10:47pm
we kind of envy them that the admiration is and mutual. they hate us for our suburban life and the houses are cookie cutter and the food is offensive. when you tell your liberal friends you're moving out to the suburbs they treat your lifestyle with utter disdain. you get more understanding and respect to told them you were changing our name to chantilly and getting a sex change operation. [laughter] i like to think deep down the hostility that our cosmopolitan single friends have about our suburban lives is this. they know they're missing out on something deep, profound. i'm talking to the secret gratitude and pride one takes increasing another human being taken care of that person will then that person unconditionally the way that god loves all of us occasionally having to build personal of jail. [laughter] been there, done that.
10:48pm
this novel is great but it's important and if it's real and proof roy childs rear and the suburbanites consider this, loving someone decide yourself for a change without losing yourself in someone else speak of problems like your kids and family come to know, but just doesn't get any better than that. [applause] >> liberals love to hate bidis or my little miracle fetus. blocker out in the left to neighborhood in austin or ann arbor kuhl of brooklyn the first thing they notice or the baby strollers. they love expensive stores to buy inexpensive. in the 2,000-dollar range. one company makes a line complete with mosquito nets. presumably for the leisurely strolls along the amazon that you are going to take. [applause] and the suspension system that one would expect from a range
10:49pm
over perhaps the off-road ventures. the 2012 beebee deluxe stroller serious is modern stroller technology as you walk around the left wing monoculture enclaves you see the guys and scarves covering around the be the inside asking would you like the rest of the turkey route? [laughter] soon there will be off the progress of preschool. we don't teach them how to read we teach them how to knit. before you know what they will be playing soccer and for a thing about climate change global warming. who says liberals don't love kids? the adored kids and swallow them in the store was and feed them organic food and a general the carry them in baskets until they are ready to head off to college
10:50pm
where they will learn all about the contemporary training poetry and how to get a schedule to sleep until noon each day and have monday and friday off. liberals love kids. it's the these they are not so crazy about. especially the inconveniently on boring kind. the unborn baby is currently the most troublesome despised character on the liberal horizon. this creature cannot win. if he scored he will condemn his mother to poverty and they are always worried about population growth it takes a lot of babies to pay for the entitlement and social state that they so a door. let alone to perpetuate the civilization. but if he or she is disposed of the meeting less than the taxpayer sponsored facility that is some kind of grim dhaka rally that poor girl was going to die. the idea that someone to adopt and care for the baby but there is another way, a more humane caring and compassion of life
10:51pm
affirming way is just not a part of their decision for liberals. the only solution is to make abortion safe, legal and tax payer funded. you have a problem with that? you want to tell mom here is the heart of the problem beebes confuse the heck out of liberals. on the one hand they represent what every be leaving thinks about people in general but for helpless, not very smart. the need supervision to the need to be under the control of the hopefully benign leader. on the other hand thinking about these especially the inconveniently not yet born kind brings out a lot of complicated baggage for them as economist has shown the rise and abortion among the black community since roe v wade had a corresponding positive effect on the crime rates in the inner city. but he proved was a symbol of an ugly fact fewer black babies in the 1970's meant fewer young black men and the 80's and the 90's and fewer young men in general white or africa or a variety of african-american for by the means the crime rates go
10:52pm
down. it seems to give st. statistical and abortion is a social good to many leftists indeed there is no limit to the good that can come if we kill off such problem groups like the young men before they are born. think of the benefits and fewer car accidents less lousy televisions and a whole lot less all of music. the price we pay for killing off these young boys is killing of a cute baby girls, to back those angels have problems of the room like teenage pregnancy. what better way to end the problem, abort the baby is so we can prevent future abortions. liberals don't like hearing that rather controversial thesis of the doctor finnegan there are lots of things that are true that liberals don't like hearing. the trick is to ignore what they say to concentrate on what they do. there is no more doting person then a part of liberal. in the same neighborhoods you will find the prenatal yoga class is called smelling new aging oil for rubbing in and
10:53pm
exotic prenatal diet books for the baby to enjoy in utero and god forbid someone within 200 yards lights a cigarette [laughter] the swat team will arrive at three minutes or less. they don't like those talks because they are not noisy and messy they make a mess of them troubled little bit of course once the child is born the liberals will step in with all sorts of orders and commitments about school they can attend and bring snacks allowed in the vending machines what sexual information will be given out and went right until the moment they had appeared its hands off that the ev as a yet unborn fetus is the property of a toast it's a depressing view of what life really is and means and
10:54pm
from whom it comes. it's unexplainable and uncontrollable. liberals hate those things which is why they hate babies. it's a grim world for the lefty and it's getting a grim that's why they love to use the word sustainable for everything. sustainable energy, sustainable food, sustainable communities. for better things don't get a bigger and better they get sustained. life, liberty and the pursuit of sustainability. doesn't have much of a ring to it, does it? that's why the little communities are so loved. maybe that's why the birth rates among the christians in the united states are so high. they can get a better. it the other side is at stake to see the same. that's why liberals really hate the babies because it's for better days ahead.

[applause] wal-mart. but rall with the everyday low prices. sam walton a shopowner in arkansas had a big idea to read if he could somehow keep his cost dependable love he could undersell his competition. with that competitive advantage he could expand and he could get more deeper discount of the american success story and as wal-mart barely 50 years after for a successful company operates all over the globe and employs over 2 million people to the reliable way they apply efficiencies and purchasing and shipping squeezing out of the supply chain from the lower prices for you and me and we've lowered prices for 1 million
10:56pm
americans a week. that's about a third of the country. the study in 2005 revealed that balart saved the average american family nearly $2,500 a year and that barely covers the annual sushi budget for your average liberal. but it's a really nice vacation for your average american family. how do they manage to keep the cost down and the customers coming. former wal-mart ceo appeared on charlie rose a few years back and charlie asked him what it was like to work for sam. scott had a terrific story about walton. >> when i didn't perform, sam would have a direct conversation with you. >> before you go round the room. these are all the officers in the company and he would maybe if a b&l in a statement and they

10:58pm
wal-mart to focus on driving costs down which means it's tough on the of early wages and tight with benefits and much of the industry the fact is that wal-mart pays only slightly less per hour than the average american retailer. 1175 on average. many workers are part time and at that time jobs are in short supply, any job is better than no job. any job can lead to a better job even in management, liberals should thank wal-mart. the company employs a staggering 1.4 million americans. it's a remarkable 1.1% of the u.s. total work force. 140 million. but liberals and their allies the steady drumbeat of criticism in its labor practices to the cost cutting and supply chain management wal-mart has raised the standard of living for every american with a question and employed all kinds of us. liberals hate all fees. they don't value efficiency and progress and certainly don't appreciate print low-cost consumer goods in the heartland, they don't care if it's
10:59pm
discounted flat screen television that you want, liberals don't in the first place they don't hate, with the heat about wal-mart is what it represents. the full energy of the free-market capitalist enterprise. [applause] they deliver the engine of growth, low cost lots of choice, tight management, think about those words for just a moment to low-cost twist of a service, management, the only enterprise larger than wal-mart is the federal government. does it operate any of those things? does any big government program beloved by liberals of refraction of the efficiency and service any wal-mart offers every day? esters off who is delivering your health care? the federal government or wal-mart clacks who would you have running the federal school system? the local teachers' union or wal-mart? who would you rather have delivering the mail for heaven's sakes? liberals don't keep wal-mart for its anti-union stance of its low prices.

11:09pm
world. liberals did not like soldiers have a voice say this? listen to the way they talk they would say we're for the soldier but again submission that is like being for football players against the coaches are being for freedom but against democracy or for the people that work at corporations that is what they think. telling a soldier you are for him against the mission does not make him feel better. he is risking his life. they it believed guns and got an nascar and they decided to fight for their country or maybe die for her. looking at victims of economic circumstances and
11:10pm
those who have no other options food join the military they will not say this to a soldier's face. they know those look could be wiped off with one smack. when john kerry return from his four month summer vacation in vietnam he flew straight to washington d.c. through the metals and he did not turn into the potomac and testified the guys were monsters and animals that he fought with. this ambitious man was part of the political union part of a committee that he would chair to tell his story about his service in vietnam. not even his stories but

11:12pm
the soldiers here is how he described his fellow soldiers " the country does not know it yet but it has created a monster of millions of men taught to kill with violence and die for the biggest nothing in history. the liberals aid to that up to talk about the so-called monsters they went for the jugular. >> it lies in large part with this country that allows the young child before he reaches the age of 14 to seek 12,000 violent deaths on television that glorifies the john wayne

of that is the game they love to play a big drop the legal battle see the difference to liberals there is no difference to someone who came legally or somebody who snuck and there is no difference between robbing the bank and using the atm. you're just taking money out of the bank. [laughter] the group and knows the difference those who waited in line now are lumped together by liberals by those who did not. those still waiting in line that the illegals keep taking. liberals hate immigrants almost as much as eight rules. legal immigrants are america's greatest of renewable resource.
11:17pm
know they took a tiny voyage across the notion because the government gives you stuff that immigrants to came here they did not come to change america the idea that has hard work encouraging on to printers placing got higher than anything else that is why they come. to raise american children. nobody is more patriotic which is why it is so important. [applause] liberals do not see it that way looking for the next group of victims they are the perfect category they

want to make spanish the semi-official language and government offices to offer bilingual services that allow it illegal immigrants to change americans the one to spend to change america it is a transaction they make it legal legal then they can enact their policies. give us your vote to we will change america. somewhere between 12 and 50 million americans is why liberals will do almost anything to win them over data-processing itself and they are compelled to the process to become americans. make them memorize facts about american history and give them a test of our kids to not even know it. then we make them take the oath.

11:37pm
line where the soldiers beat up and fight. that does not have been any more. even with a truck full of toy the paper you can be attacked so with no front line with the combat support or engineer or cook you can be drawn into battle and doing the same jobs. >> women are not supposed to serve in combat? >> the great irony with the pentagon point* to view from ground combat they have been over 10 years. >> host: was there a
11:38pm
typical experience for women with american soldiers? >> depending on the year they were serving and where they're reserving and who they were serving with. but one out of 10 troops there was a small amount of what men the isolation of surveying like that could be from constant harassment to sexual assault and rape and sexual assault and rape and i did hear more of those than i expected.

11:46pm
into iraq we did not dig deep enough but to find out what was really going on in iraq i had to ask the british and french journalist. those covering iraq the spoke arabic it was a few but not enough also some censorship. not getting the true numbers on either side. but i am generalizing.
11:47pm
some have done an incredible job to cover the war and to a knowledge a splendid reporter may he rest in peace. >> have you written about war previously? our just this one? temecula toll of world war ii in a novel setting but never about to call back anwr on the ground it is a new subject for me and had many, many interviews with isn't like to be a woman soldier in combat to? then i found out lot more. >> host: helen benedict is

11:52pm
>> ag guess that is dangerous because they are not to be that foundational. what the public recognizes least we ann haq of less regard for fact although we work to get data but the most reliable part that whatever they find today will be superseded either revise our overturned completely but to revised by the next generation of scientists it is always been in the past 400 years science is a revision. >> you write science and

using new to as laws of gravity, of course. but those from einstein have been changed. with those proposals they are still true within the regime but has changed is the have expanded so mountains foreign relations work as long as you don't do it within the speed of light. then you have to invoke the einstein relativity. sending signals to satellites and back need to be adjusted from einstein relativity or it would be 15 meters off. >> of brands and has stood
